The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.973 billion Delfics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Environment and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 4.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Delfosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,521 trillion tomatoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 132,906 tomatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, royalist is the most offensive slur in the New Delfosian language, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. New Delfos's national animal is the Big Red Tomato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
